Mandela death leads to criticism of Reagan's South Africa policy


From theGrio:

Who would’ve thought that the death of Nelson Mandela would help dig up Reagan’s horrible record on South Africa?  The passing of the African nation’s former president has caused Reagan’s policy of coddling the apartheid regime in the 1980s to be re-examined and amplified.
This renewed criticism of Reagan is resonating with people, and all this unwanted attention is worrying some on the right, as it should, particularly at a time when another country’s first black president—Barack Obama, that is— is experiencing a low point in his popularity.  Presumably, from a strictly Machiavellian realpolitik point of view, the right would want to capitalize on President Obama’s historically low poll numbers, given that attacking the president is what they do best — it’s just about the only thing they do, in the absence of any useful legislative proposals.
